RONDO’S RECORD

The Celtics game notes recently had an interesting note on point guard Rajon Rondo.

It stated: “Rondo recorded 20 assists against the Raptors on Nov. 17 and it marked the sixth time in his career that he has surpassed the 20 assist mark. .. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Rondo has more games with 20 or more assists than all of the other players in Celtics history combined: Bob Cousy (2), Sherman Douglas (2) and Nate Archibald (1).”
